Results showed the BodyMedia Core was the most accurate device, with the Fitbit Flex coming in second place. This supported a previous study which rated them as the two most accurate.
Jawbone Up24 and Nike Fuelband SE came in third and fourth place – both with accuracy rates of between 15 and 18 per cent.
Slightly misleading headline from the Daily Mail Online as the trackers quoted above were actually pretty accurate. As the comments in the article suggest, if a fitness tracker helps you to get more active and to live a healthier lifestyle then they have worked. Analysis of fitness data can be truly inspiring when integrating with other apps and services.
